The Sandlot Cast Reunion Will Remind You That Life Moves Fast

Since they were down a man, NBC correspondent Gadi Schwartz stood in for "Benny the Jet" Rodriguez, and he immediately got the business, Ham-style, from Renna.

As for cast's favorite lines in The Sandlot,"Bake him like a toasted cheeser", and "You bob for apples in the toilet, and you like it", were the clear winners amongst all of them.

In the segment, Marty York, who portrayed Yeah-Yeah (and, as a buff grownup looks nothing like that fast-talking skinny kid), opened up about the enduring legacy of the film and its effect on his life. "The Sandlot" was released in 1993, and to celebrate the film's 25th anniversary, the cast got together again, and it was one heck of a reunion!

It's hard to believe, but The Sandlot is now 25 years old.

You can't hear the phrase, "You're killing me, Smalls!" without knowing exactly where it came from.

Even after more than two decades, the cast proved they're still on top of the game when they played baseball.

"It's been insane. I can't walk through a Las Vegas casino without someone yelling 'Yeah-Yeah!'" York explained. And for anyone who grew up in the '90s, another treat that defined the season was "The Sandlot".

While the stars never realized their Dodgers dreams in real life, their on-screen team spirit inspired many of today's Major League Baseball greats.

"It made a big impact on a lot of people's lives", Guiry says.

"I think she just thinks I'm kind of a dork", he said.

For Patrick Renna, who played Hamilton "Ham" Porter, the reunion was a reminder that some friendships are just meant to stand the test of time.
